Flower Girl Gone Bad

Flower Girl Gone Bad - Behind The Awkwardness

“This was my uncle’s wedding back in 1980. I had agreed to be the flower girl and did a perfect run through in rehearsal. What I didn’t expect was the doors to the ceremony opening and 500 people all standing and turning to look at me. Check out my epic pout. I REFUSED to stroll down the aisle. My sweet grandma is the one leaning over telling me to sneak through a side aisle and sit with my grandpa. The mother of the bride is behind me, probably ready to strangle me.”

The Eye

The Eye - Behind The Awkwardness

“My oldest son Ben always refused to have his picture taken when he was young. On this particular day seven years ago, he once again decided not to be a part of the photo with his siblings (or so I thought). This picture of his brother and sister turned out so well that I framed several copies and sent them to family members. It wasn’t until YEARS later that I noticed something strange… our family now refers to this picture as ‘The Eye.’”

Short & Sweet

Short & Sweet - Behind The Awkwardness

“This was our 8th grade graduation dance picture.  It really speaks for itself, but we’re like the equivalent of a HS senior and a 3rd grader.  It’s been a staple picture with friends and family over the years and must be shared.  To all the short guys out there, this is for you, keep the hope alive!”

She’s Got Legs

She’s Got Legs - Behind The Awkwardness

“My dad and mom were magicians touring with a circus when I was just a small kid. We have a set of promo shots taken in front of this weird clown poster. Among the good photos, there is also this one. Apparently, Mom got tired and went laying on the nearby bed while my dad was making funny faces to the camera and I seemed to be interested in the clown poster. Without knowing the backstory though, it looks like Dad did something suspicious with mom…”

Mommy Needs Botox - Behind The Awkwardness

“This envelope had my Mother’s Day card inside. I asked him which Person was me? The one on the right he answered. Then I asked him what are those lines on my face? He said: ‘your forehead.’”
